Notes about the ATOM file extension:
To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened
" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?
" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps"
and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.
The ATOM file type is primarily associated with 'Atom Feed'. Atom is the name of a specific web feed format. Atom files are XML files but are sometimes given the .ATOM file extension. To use an Atom feed you need an aggregator or news aggregator.
